EP Read along Week 4: Chapters 9, 10, 11




To all Mia Bella Ragazza, Happy Friday!

I’m honored to be subbing for Kassie this week (get better girl, NY awaits!) and thanking Marie for asking me to pinch hit. There’s nothing that makes me happier than taking one for team-EP. So here we go girls. Grab some Toblerone, Cherry Coke, or Grey Goose and let the comments fly!

I know that some people don’t like the in and out of POV’s as they can sometimes be repetitive. But in the case of EP, we really need to hear what goes on from these two very different voices. Besides, you can’t get enough of Edward’s debauchery from just one angle, Seeing him through Bella’s innocent eyes is very revealing.
Chapter 9 gives us Edward’s inner voice and like his outer one, it’s insightful as well as amusing. For example, he comments on Jasper’s “If mom could see you now...” Edward feels that if his mother could see his behavior she would be disappointed with him. He remembers how different he was when she was alive. She raised her boys to be gentlemen and Edward was the one most like her back then. He was coddled and pretty much a mama’s boy. He’s different now, he pushes people away and thinks nobody truly sees his pain. He and Bella have some things in common. They both don’t want people to see them for who they really are. They’re protecting themselves from further hurt, having been broken beyond what others could understand. Edward hides behind his badass, man-whore self, Bella behind the slave who’s most safe taking orders.
This chapter describes how captivated he is with something as simple as watching her moan as she eats chocolate for the very first time. Stunning he thinks, and like the hormonal guy he admits to being, gets aroused by her as she enjoys this simple pleasure. “Something about her being happy made me smile. I had a feeling she had more demons haunting her than me.” This quote of Edward’s sums up their relationship nicely. There’s something he recognizes in her, something he needs to save, something maybe that she might in return save in him.
Don’t you just love how Edward describes moans, and groans and taking care of his release? Yeah, get used to it, he’s a young guy, he’ll be taking care of himself a great deal or looking for someone to do it for him! Did I just make you smile? That’s what Edward does for me, he makes me smile.

Next we’re introduced to the boys. As I said, Edward admits to being an ass, rude, crude, and hot-headed. He’s like his father, he can be intimidating and scary. It’s almost like he’s become what’s expected of him, he’s the bad boy. Both brothers want nothing to do with their father’s business. Emmett is more accepting while Jasper holds on to his mother’s values. We meet Alice, and she’s as you would expect. Edward calls her “short-cake” and she’s in charge of buying Bella some clothes. Rosalie is as you would expect too, she’s Emmett’s bitchy yet devoted girlfriend. kiTT, what were the quotes you liked in chapter 9???
Chapter 10 is Bella’s voice. We learn she’s slowly enjoying her new life. Jasper makes her feel welcome, Emmett makes her feel safe. Edward, well, he’s awaking something in her that scares her. She’s suddenly feeling something she hasn’t felt since she was a child and that is HOPE. “I felt hope, happiness, and I couldn’t allow that, because when it all came to an end, as it inevitably would, it would destroy me. I couldn’t let my guard down-I needed to be strong. And I blamed Edward for breaking me so much already.” Like Edward feels about her, she thinks he’s dangerous “..others could beat me and punish me..leave me battered and bruised but they’d never break me. Edward, ...already had my walls crumbling.” I think Edward’s walls are falling too. I think they both don’t feel like they deserve to be loved, or that they are lovable. At least that’s what I hear them saying in these early chapters. What are your thoughts?
Didn’t you love Alice hugging Bella? I don’t think she’s ever had a friend, and certainly not one as warm as Alice. I loved the football shirt comment...”The girls in this town are nuts over that boy...you wearing his clothes is cause enough for their jealousy to spike.”
I don’t blame them really, I still want one of those shirts to wear to bed myself. Thanks Marie for preparing the ones from Cafe Press, one more Edward shirt in my stash!
Carlisle shows his softer side when he insists Bella eat and puts her dinner in the fridge for her. He also makes an interesting comment after she says she would never disrespect him...”Never say never, Isabella. Disrespect comes in many forms and sometimes we do it without even realizing it.” Any guesses as to what he means by that?

Chapter 11 shows Edward’s childish, needy side. He gets pissed off that Bella seems to be able to sit, eat, and speak with his brothers but him, nothing. He’s also upset at himself, she’s interfering with his bad boy side, even giving him “performance issues.” He's already beating himself up for the way he's coming across toward Bella. He seems to be putting his foot in his mouth anytime he's around her. Why do you think this is happening to him. Where did confident Edward go?
Now for Edward, that’s a major hurtle to over come. But alas he has skanky Lauren to help him out. What did you all think about Edward not allowing Lauren, or any girl to kiss him on the mouth? Like he said, kissing is too intimate and that’s something he hasn’t done since he was a kid. Once again, alluding to the fact that something in his childhood broke his spirit. How did you like Edward’s comment about not having sex in his car but rather outside, on the hood? I wanted to smack him on the first read. But having read it through and falling hard for this “finicky f**ker” the only thought I have now, thanks to Rob too is...”kneel, open your mouth, smile, and pray.” I think that’s pretty much the message Edward was sending Lauren, and dam if she wasn’t left smiling. So, I can’t rightly blame Edward, Lauren got what she prayed for.

Well girls, do you agree that Edward is just giving a girl what she asked for? Or, do you
think he’s just a jerk? What did you think of him walking into Bella’s room as she slept?
Should he have done that given how afraid she would have been to find him there? What do you think of Emmett, Jasper, Alice, and Rosalie? What about Carlisle leaving Bella and the boys alone? Who’s POV do you like reading the best?

Hang in there girls, the EP journey we’re on gets better with each chapter. Characters grow, plot develops, a bedroom becomes an incredibly sweet bubble, and secrets get revealed...
Sempre,
Fran



For next week, we are reading Chapters 12, 13 and 14. :)

EP Read Along Week 3

EP Read Along Week 3
Chapters 6-8

Happy Friday!
It's my turn to do the EP Read Along post......hope I do as well as Kassie!
Here goes.....

I hope everyone had a chance to read this weeks chapters because we finally get into Edward's head, and I don't know about you, but I find being in EP Edward's head very entertaining.  Maybe it's his filthy mouth or his perverted mind, but  EP Edward is quite fun!

So Chapter 6 and 7 we get our first EPOV chapters and we learn a few things about Edward.  He is the manwhore of Forks H.S. without a doubt.  He is the star of the football team, which has totally gone to his head.  How do you like the way he treats Jessica?  Do you feel bad for her, or is she a slut that deserves it?

We also learn a little more about Carlisle through Edward and what kinds of things he is involved in.  We also learn how he, Emmett and Jasper feel about their father's "business".  

We are introduced to Rosalie and Alice.  Don't you love the banter between Rosalie and Edward?  Rosalie brings up a good point, that it was stupid for Carlisle to bring a teenage girl into a house with three teenage boys.  What do you think about that?  That does seem like a crazy thing to do especially with Edward's reputation and Carlisle is not stupid.  So what do you think Carlisle's true motivation is for bringing Bella there?

Then we have Bella's first day alone in the house.  One thing that creeped me out is that Bella says that even though she is alone, she suspects she is being watched.  I don't know if I could deal with that. She says she is used to having every detail of her life controlled for her. So I guess being watched has been the least of her problems.

I love when Edward says his shirt looks good on Bella....and then kind of takes it back. I guess he thought he was being a little too forward - maybe there is a little gentlemen in there after all.

Did you think Edward was kind of being a dick when he and Bella left for the grocery store,  but by the time the started shopping, something changed between them.  What do you think happened?  Of course at the end of the chapter, we are introduced to Edward's favorite candy bar, which he kindly shares with Bella.  Bella's reaction is the best!  Then again, who of us doesn't moan when we get a good candy bar?

There is a lot of breath hitching and heart fluttering in this chapter, but it IS Edward and a girl can't help it, can she? What do you think? Do they have that inexplicable attraction???? 


One more thing.  Last week, Fran mentioned how she would love to have a Cullen football shirt with 21 on the back like Edward's shirt that Bella is "borrowing".  So I went on Cafe Press and made one, if anyone is interested in getting one for themselves.
  
For next week, we will be reading 
Chapters 9, 10 and 11.
Let the commenting begin.......

EP Read Along Week 2

Marie and I just want to start out by saying we are so happy with the turn out last weekend and we are very excited about chatting with you all while reading this monster of a fic.

So ladies it wasn't so bad adding another chapter was it? It was a good thing we did this week because we got the chance to bring Edward into the picture, but before he made an appearance we had a lot of things going on.

What do you think of Carlisle now? I personally love it when he puts Charles in his place and does things like taking the make-up for Isabella, knowing the fighting Charles and his wife were doing over borrowing it in the first place.

What are your feelings when Carlisle let her say goodbye to her mom? Although, then he takes her to be 'chipped' and threatens that he will kill her for betraying him. But he mentions he will not beat her. My feelings are conflicted, so I can imagine your feelings might be the same.

What do you think of the Cullen boys so far? They seem relatively harmless, right? I loved when Jasper made Isabella a sandwich, what was your favorite encounter so far between her and the three boys?

This is taken from Fran's post on EP.
We already have a glimpse into the fact that Edward plays football...
not having practice, Isabella wearing a hs football t-shirt to bed.
You get the idea.
How do you think Isabella will fare on her first day working in the Cullen household? She has never had this much freedom before so remember that when imagining what the first day will be like for her.

For next week we will be reading Chapters 6, 7 & 8!

See you in the comments.

Virtual Slam Book

One year ago this month, we had our amazing New Moon Party!  Can you believe that it has been a year?
At our New Party last year, we did something called a Slam Book.  I don't know if you did this back in the day, but my pre-teen/teen friends and I used to make these all the time.  Basically you just make a book with number pages and questions at the top of each page.  You would sign the first page and then answer each page's question on your numbered line.  Really not as complicated as it sounds.  LOL

Click here for a portion of our Slam Book from the New Moon party.  
The password is: edward

I password protected it since our last names are one there - so hopefully only our Twi-Friends will  get in.  It's not big deal, but I just don't want it coming up in search engines on the web. 

It occurred to me over these last few weeks, that a slam book would be an excellent way to get to know each other better.  I'll be honest with you - in the same way that a person might have trouble putting names with faces - I have trouble putting Names with Twilight Psuedonyms with blogs, etc.  You get the picture.  
So I present to you, the Twilight Junkies Anonymous Virtual Slam Book!
It's all in good fun and you don't have to answer all of the questions if you don't want to.

You can fill out the slam book form here on the blog or
here is a direct link to the form (I know a few questions got cut off)

To view the results, go to:

EP Read Along Week 1

Photobucket

Hey ladies,

I can't believe we were able to get this together in such a short amount of time. I take it the first chapters of reading went well...

What are your thoughts so far?

We have a little background on Bella and her Mom, but that's just the tip of the iceberg.

We were introduced to Renee, Bella, Charles, his wife, and Carlisle. What do you think of them? I promise your opinion on each character will be forever changing throughout the course of the story; some you will love, some you will love even more, some you will hate, some you will hate even more, and some will have you scratching your head wondering how you exactly feel.

So far we haven't needed much hand holding. Let's buckle ourselves in for the rest of this bumpy ride.

For next week we are working on chapters 3 and 4.

See you in the comments!

Update: Hey ladies since EP will be pulled for publication, which is really awesome, can you try to read chapters 3, 4 & 5 for next weekend. These early chapters are considerably shorter than the later ones and if it's too much we can re-evaluate later. If you have any questions or concerns please email us.

Vanity (Un?)Fair

Awww so I was reading Rob's Vanity Fair article and it made me want to cry.. and hug him but not in the 'I'm a crazy fan of yours' kind of way but in the 'I want to take all the craziness away for you' kind of way.

But then I was thinking, I'm not one of the fans he's talking about who is crazy and asks him to bite them and hunts him down on sets and in hotels and follows him when he goes out to dinner, am I??

Am I that person?

I go to Oprah and scream his name and he smiles nicely and waves. I'm thinking to myself "Oh my god, that's so cool, he's so cool!" and he's probably thinking "Oh god, not one of those. I bet her crazy ass will show up at my hotel."

Is it so much to ask that we all not be dumped into the 'crazy fan' category?

I mean we respect Rob, right? We respect him enough to want to meet him in person maybe shake his hand get an autograph to remember the occasion or a picture of some sort. But I guess when you are living in that bubble of fame where everyone wants a piece of you no matter how little, even the slightest thing can be blown out of proportion.

I don't want him to "shut the fuck up" like he says of himself in the article but seriously is it too much to ask that we all not get lumped into this category of crazy ass fans that want to tear him to pieces?

I may talk a good game about what I'd do to Rob if I ever met him like hug him and ask him to do dirty things with me. But I truly know myself and I would probably just say "Hi, nice to meet you." and move on. I would be thinking too many things to ask for a picture or an autograph and maybe internally being on of those 'crazy fans'.

Why does this make me feel like shit? Even if you haven't read the article yet, how does it make you feel?

*the picture is from Robsessed and it's the same place you can find the scans of the article.
